Sudanese Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour stressed on Tuesday that his country will remain part of the Saudi-led Arab coalition aimed at restoring legitimacy in Yemen.

The battle on Thursday is reportedly the heaviest one that Sudan has suffered since it has deployed troops in Yemen in 2015, to bolster the mostly Gulf Arab alliance fighting the Iran-allied Houthi movement. The Houthis' Al-Masirah TV channel did not say when the attack took place nor did it give details of any damage caused. Other residents of the capital posted on social media similar accounts of hearing loud explosions and seeing smoke in the sky from the possible missile interception.

Saudi officials said flights were temporarily suspended at Abha airport in line with safety procedures. More than 10,000 Yemenis have died in the conflict and millions in the impoverished country have been pushed to the brink of starvation. He has previously warned that Saudi Arabia reserves the right to respond against Iran.
